This one is very easy for me. For me, THE best version would have to be George C. Scott's version. IMHO, he was, is, and always will be, the best Ebeneezer Scrooge to ever utter the line BAH HUMBUG! I never missed this version whenever it came on at Christmas time growing up, and it kinda scared me when I was little, but I love it now as an adult even more! I've seen all the other's, the original with Alister Simms was pretty good, but I didn't care for the production values, it looks well, cheap IMHO. I love the George C. Scott version because it's haunting and lush in it's photography, I love the town where it was filmed, I think it was called Strewsberry England, just a beutiful city. Not to mention the fact that it had, hands down, the best, and spookiest, ghost of Christmas future ever! I just marvel at Scott's performance at the end when he wipes away the dirt to reveal his name on the grave stone, when he starts crying and pleading with the ghost, he really makes me believe that he will be a changed man from now on. Another version I like a lot is the musical version with Albert Finny called Scrooge. I love that song he sings near the beginning called 'I Hate People', that's pretty much how I feel, so it work's for me. Don't be a Scrooge, tell me your favorites. Merry Christmas BAH HUMBUG! Just kidding!
